For most of us, 2020 has been a year of almost dramatic, almost traumatic change. As individuals, our lives have been transformed; as businesses, our operating models have been revolutionised; and as a society, we have been shaken to the core.

The new ways of interaction that emerged this year – characterised by remote work, distance education, remote healthcare, online shopping and mobile money – will define how society works in future. Across the economy the pace of change is already enormous. Last week, when we launched a 5G lab in Wits University, Professor Adam Habib, the Wits vice-chancellor told us ho...

I have since maintained consistency and decency in leadership, playing significant roles but with great humility. So far, I don’t admire the attitude and behavior of my peers on the Kyagulanyi side. I see them as risking our collective future and progressive s...
